The Perm & The Skullet is a non-profit music blog devoted to bringing you music of all kinds.

Although we prefer that rustic, acoustic, unusual, whiskey soaked sound, we do like music of all styles and genres. If you have something you think we should listen to, by all mean, let us know.

All Links and MP3s are for sampling, evaluation, and introduction purposes only and are intended to provide exposure to said artist / film / site etc... If you like it, please go buy it.

Online, we recommend Insound, emusic or directly from the artist or their label. Locally, we recommend Schoolkids Records or Bull City Records.

Most Mp3 samples are only available for a limited time, usually a week or two. If there is something you missed, and it is currently unavailable or out of print, please let us know and we can see what we can do.

MP3s, Links, and Images can easily be taken down, so if you are the owner or their representation, and would like said link or file removed, just let us know and we'€™ll be happy to do so. You can E-mail me directly here for any questions or concerns or submissions.

Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

The Hong Kong

Think Blondie meets modern day, electric fuzz and you will be close to The Hong Kong's sound. Originally from New Orleans, later re-grouping in Brooklyn, NY, The Hong Kong's are just waiting to blow up . They just signed with Ric Ocasek's new label, Inverse Records in March '05 and just got back from being on Tour with the Ceasers. AMG had this to say about their 2004 debut release:

"The Hong Kong's debut record, Rock the Faces, is junk-shop pop at its finest. Built out of parts of various great bands and artists, it shines like a brand new artifact. The list of components reads like a hipster's Christmas wish list: the steady pulse and electronic savvy of Stereolab, the heady rush of classic girl groups like the Shangri-Las, the tough melodic craft of Blondie, and the tin can studio feel of the Jesus and Mary Chain, all topped by the wonderfully tough and rich vocals of Catherine Culpepper" AMG ****

Check out their website, their myspace, and watch a live performance from the Bowery Ballroom here.
